Xarvio aims to shoot weeds by camera, then a targeted herbicide application

Brent Nicol of Xarvio Digital Farming Solutions describes how its scouting app uses photo-recognition to identify early-stage weeds, diseases and measure leaf damage using images taken with your smartphone. Xarvio is currently working with technology-maker Bosch to develop ‘Smart Sprayer’ technology that will allow operators to spray individual weeds on-the-go with a targeted herbicide application.

Xarvio won the innovations award in the Plant and Soil Science category at Ag in Motion 2019 earlier in July.
